PROJECT TITLE: Satellite detection of faint fluorescence phenomena — SADET

Coordinator: The Institute of Space Science (ISS)

Partners: -

Period: 19 November 2012 - 18 November 2014

Project director: PhD. Maria Haiduc

Project team: Maria HAIDUC - Ph.D., Eugeniu Mihnea POPESCU - Ph.D., Marius RUJOIU - Ph.D., Elena FIRU - Ph.D., Veta GHENESCU - Ph.D., Titi PREDA -  Ph.D, Alina NEAGU - Ph.D. student, Ionel STAN - Ph.D. student, Adrian Sevcenco - Ph.D. student, Andrei Radu Aurelian – Ph.D, Madalin Cherciu – PH.D.

Description: The SADET project proposes the development of new techniques for the extraction of time-limited faint UV/IR fluorescence signals from non-negligible background, noise and atmospheric effects in satellite experiments using pixelated detectors. The techniques will be applied explicitly to the study of the UV fluorescence yield of EAS produced by UHECR in the TUS experiment (collaboration with JINR-Dubna and MSU-Moscow), which is a precursor of the TUS-M/KLYPVE and JEM-EUSO experiments aboard the ISS, and will be developed with an eye towards other applications in ESA programs such as SSA/SWE and GMES (CO2  monitoring by the Sun-induced IR fluorescence of chlorophyll in the vegetation).
